Trinnov will once again partner with Procella Audio and Kaleidescape for ISE 2019, with the brands once again building a state-of-the-art cinema on the trade show floor. Given the existence of the recently-announced Altitude 48 Ext from Trinnov, however, the cinema required a major refit for 2019.
In 2017, Trinnov, Procella Audio and Kaleidescape built an 11.3.10 system on the show floor, while in 2018, an 11.4.6 system was deployed. For 2019, a huge upgrade has been made.
Benoit Munoz, marketing manager, at Trinnov explains, “When Trinnov announced the Altitude 48 Ext, we knew we had more toys to play with. So, we redesigned our Procella Audio sound room for ISE 2019 to use as many channels, as many loudspeakers, as needed for a truly immersive, optimal cinematic audio experience.
“So this time it will be a 21.4.10 system, with some unusual but well-thought-out loudspeaker placements, as follows: Five screen channels! Not just Left, Center and Right, but two more speakers behind the screen: Inner-Left and Inner-Right. The use of five channels behind the screen is a very powerful feature, and this year you will be reminded why: it provides a rock-solid front sound stage with impeccable detail across the front.
“Of course, the perfect loudspeaker for this role is the THX PM3 certified centre-piece of our line-up, the Procella P8! These five screen channels get their dedicated subwoofer to take care of their bass-managed bass extension, in the form of the venerable V18!”
Benoit adds, “With that much intensity in the loudspeaker configuration, we need a V21 main subwoofer! Main LFE bass is going to be powerful and profound, powered by our new DA5000-DSP amplifier, supplying a brutal 2 x 2500W into the two 21in drivers. Two more sub woofers complete the system, being two Procella P15-FP subs, each with dual 15in drivers. These will only be used to provide bass for the surrounds and Atmos channels, each powered by the DA2800-DSP amplifier, which is returning to our line-up.”
